Great place to "live" a little history. Well preserved. It is moving to stand in a church where such a important speech was given. History buffs will enjoy.

To walk where our forefathers have walked is priceless. Besides Sundays in the summer for the reenactment of Patrick Henry's "give me liberty" speach, we've also attended a nighttime tour of the cemetary. Even your kids will love the history during the reenactment which is so real you forget it's not 1776! And you are sitting in the exact seats the participants of the day did.

We went to this church on the Sunday before Veterans Day and watched the "Give Me Liberty or Give me death" speech and reenactment. Awesome! We sat in the front row of the balcony and was glued to what George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry were debating.....sooooo real and it's exactly where it actually took place!
Don't miss this!!

The tour guides are excellent at this church. They bring the history alive in costume and by their excellent recitation of Patrick Henry's speech. Go - take the tour - and love this piece of history!

It is not often you get to see dates in the 1600's in US Cemeteries so here is your chance. The walk through history is great within itself but the tour added so much more. The church at 1st appearance should strike you as large for the construction time and the tour took us through all of the expansions to understand the original. The tour price was quite reasonable especially when you consider it is going to a 501C3 foundation for the preservation of the historic property. The tour and the walk through history plus stops at the park and the Patrick Henry Pub make for a very nice afternoon.
